Electromagnetic field therapy, which can be optimally performed with the BEMER, is a complex one that not only improves the blood circulation and oxygen supply, but also has a general regulatory effect on the metabolism. In conjunction with other biological and clinical methods, it frequently succeeds in alleviating symptoms and positively affecting the entire course of the illness.
The positive effects of the low frequency, pulsating electromagnetic fields used in the BEMER Therapy have been scientifically proven.
The following consequences are of significance in the treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis:
- Improved microcirculation in damaged tissue.
- Elimination of acids and metabolic end products.
- Activation of the repair proteins and anti-inflammatory enzymes
- This supports the best possible regeneration of the damaged tissue
Information about Ankylosing Spondylitis
Ankylosing Spondylitis belongs to the group of chronic inflammatory-rheumatic illnesses that primarily affect the spinal column and the sacroiliac joint. The peripheral joints, tendons, or inner organs are less often affected. This illness occurs in 0.2% to 0.5% of the population, whereby men are affected ten times more frequently than women. A genetic cause seems evident since the antigen, HLA B27, has been found in the blood of 95% of the patients. This serves as an important diagnostic criterion. On various occasions an infection of the intestinal or lymph systems has been presumed as the trigger, however, the real causes have still not been established.
The illness often occurs between the ages of 20 and 40, starting with back pains that radiate to the legs. The increasingly inflammatory changes, with their strong tendency to calcification at the onset of the tendons and inter-vertebral disks, later lead to painful disabilities. In the late stage of the disease a progressive calcification of the supporting tendons and inter-vertebral disks set itself forth, causing increased stiffness and curvature of the spinal column. Serious and painful motion impairment and damage to the breathing mechanism can be the result.
